‘The Amazing Spiderman 2′ Goes Unscripted

The cast of The Amazing Spiderman 2 sat down for a Moviefone Unscripted. They answered fan questions. Jamie came up with a theme song, Andrew would like to work onscreen with The Hulk, and the cast talked rumors. They were asked a lot of questions by Courtney C. which Emma believed was Courtney Cox. I am on board with that.

These guys are ridiculously fun! I love them.

A Fan’s Wish of Visiting the set of ‘Catching Fire’ Comes True

MarisaTran-with-CF-castWe love a great story and this one is amazing. Marisa Tran had her wish come true and we’re so glad. Cause this is absolutely touching. Kids Wish Network was able to grant Marisa’s wish of going to The Hunger Games set. She was able to meet Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Willow Shields, and Liam Hemsworth.

As Marisa Tran was stuck in the hospital recovering from rounds of chemotherapy, there was one book series that she loved to repeatedly read cover-to-cover, “The Hunger Games”. The teen easily related to Katniss’s bravery and strong nature, two things Marisa needed to help her through the devastating treatment required to fight off her life-threatening illness. When she was well enough, Kids Wish Network wouldn’t think of a better way to show her some support than by granting her wish to visit the set of the series second book and movie, “Catching Fire”.

‘One Direction’ Fanfiction Gets Shopped for Potential Movie

Harry StylesHarry Styles is adorable and yeah… he and his bandmates have launched thousands upon thousands of fanfiction. It was inevitable really, what with fans idolizing these boys just like their favorite fictional characters. Consider it a rite of passage because truly, fanfiction has existed even before the internet laid such stories bare for all to read.

However, a budding trend now seems to pair Hollywood, book covers and television scripts with their biggest fans and the outcome leads to huge deals — think Fifty Shades of Grey.

This time now, it’s Harry Styles’ pretty boy looks sealing the deal according to Deadline:

UTA has signed to represent screen rights for After, a serialized story by Anna Todd that has become the most followed literary property published by Wattpad, an online community in which writers tell stories chapter by chapter. According to Wattpad general manager Candice Faktor, the three-part series After has been clicked on by more than 500 million.

For Wattpad, After is the closest thing the site has experienced to Fifty Shades Of Grey, which began in similar fashion as fan fiction before it became a massive global bestseller and an upcoming Universal/Focus feature for author E.L. James. The way Faktor describes it, After sounds like a close cousin, without the S&M. “A happy, optimistic young girl falls in love with a guy with a dark side that is addictive, and their relationship is a rollercoaster ride,” Faktor said.

Unfortunately as it is wont to do, fandom was split and things became ugly so Todd released her own statement in response to the news:

“Fanfictions are turned into books/movies all the time so I hope those of you who dislike After or me, will just take a step back and look at this as an opportunity for yourself and with all the amazing things happening with Wattpad you could be the one having a movie next! So try to remember that Wattpad is an amazing and postivite community, that being said I won’t engage in any fights so please leave your hateful comments on your own page.” (x)

Whatever your opinion on fanfiction is… there’s no need to be mean. Seriously people, wish this lady the best because she’s turned a dream of hers into a reality. And that’s worth cheering for no matter what.
